Now, 4

The twins had their birthday this month. I can say “this month” and mean it because it took me a month to get everything together (enough) for their little party.

This is what we didn’t have: a bouncy house, a trampoline, a pony. A clown, a magician, a musician. A theme. A massive invitation list.

This is what we did have: Balloons. Lemonade in orange and blue and lime green plastic glasses with straws. Bright blue paper plates. Grandma visiting us. Vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and rainbow sprinkles. Candles, and the “Happy Birthday” song (sung twice, one for each boy). Presents, which included squirt guns and fire trucks and wooden puzzles and a pretend birthday cake and light-up bears and monkeys and bubbles and Buzz Lightyear.

My boys are now 4. Happy Birthday, little ones. I’m so glad you’re here!
